The bank capped its involvement in the event by inviting several of its female employees to the induction of Hillary Clinton into the IWF and Leadership Foundation Hall of Fame.

Say you go into a hair salon and want to pay your stylist a tip, but you don’t have any cash on hand. Instead, you use your credit card and pencil in a tip amount. Given the fees merchants have to pay for the ability to accept debit or credit card payments, perhaps you’ve asked yourself how much of the tip will actually make it to the stylist. Will the merchant take a cut of it in order to help pay those fees?

In its largest show of support for an organization targeting HIV, BBVA Compass is teaming up with the Elton John AIDS Foundation to reinforce the organization’s work in the Southern U.S.

Sir Elton John created his foundation nearly 25 years ago, and it has since raised more than $350 million and become a global leader in the fight to end AIDS. Its ongoing work in the South is critical: The epicenter of the nation’s HIV epidemic has moved from the coasts — the first AIDS cases were reported in Los Angeles and New York City in 1981 — to the 16 states and District of Columbia that make up the South, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

The Federal Reserve Board released the results Thursday of the latest round of the Dodd-Frank Act Stress Test, which reported that BBVA Compass projections again exceeded the minimum applicable regulatory requirements for all nine quarters in the severely adverse hypothetical scenario as defined by the Fed.

The stress test, to which 33 of the country’s largest financial institutions were subjected, is designed to evaluate whether the firms have sufficient capital to absorb losses in a hypothetical, severely adverse scenario. The scenario depicts economic conditions that are more adverse than expected conditions.

The results released on Thursday were from the first of two Fed stress tests. The results of the Comprehensive Capital Analysis Review, or CCAR, will be released next week.

BBVA Compass posts the results, and the full disclosure for both stress tests, here.
